Ancient Biryani or Dindigul Thalapakatti Biryani


Remember this winning story,I made this ancient biryani for the contest,and that turned up into dindigul biryani...In one of the tamil literature of Imperungkappiyam,it has mentioned as "Oon Sooru"  ஊன் சோறு  made with small onions and a few spices...When i tried this recipe,I was surprised it tasted exactly like Thalapakatti Biryani....

Quick Note on Sangakala Unavu
The small onion,cumin and pepper are found during Second millennium BC as said by wikipedia..I wish i cud grab many resources of the spices and its origins...

Ingredients
Chicken-250gms
Seeraga Arisi-200 gms
Coconut milk-250 ml
Coriander powder-1 tsp
Turmeric powder-half tsp
Ginger garlic paste-1 tbsp
Garam masala-2 cloves,2 cardomon,half inch Cinnamon stick,Bayleaf-1
Curd-Quarter cup
Ghee-half cup

To make fine paste
Small Onions-50 gms
Coriander leaves-10 stems
Green Chilly-1-2 nos
Peppercorns-1 tsp
Cumin-one and half  tbsp
Cinnamon-1 inch stick
Clove-3 nos
Cardomon-2-3 nos
Salt to taste
Method


Add the ghee in a pressure cooker,saute the dry spices


Add the chicken and garlic paste and saute them well
Add the curd and turmeric powder and saute it


Grind all the ingredients(Small onions,Green chillies,Cinnamon,cloves,pepper,cumin,coriander and mint leaves) into fine paste 


Add the Washed rice to the chicken in cooker


And the coconut milk to the rice


Add the fine paste,coriander powder and salt to it
Bring to boil


Pressure cook it for 3 whistles..Drizzle some ghee and serve hot


I usually do pressure cooking this biryani...But yor can also make by slow cooking process in pan...
